On Saturday, September 1st, Luca jumped off the couch and broke his leg in two places. The sound of a puppy who has broken a leg is something you never want to hear. We rushed him to the emergency room where they put a temporary bandage on him. However, he was in so much pain that he had to stay at the hospital a few nights over Labor Day weekend until an orthopedic surgeon would be available to consult on his case. We found out that Luca would need surgery if we wanted him to be able to walk normally in the future.
